    Does anybody know a good Tolstoy's Bio book or site?

    I am looking for a good book or site with Leo Tolstoy's biography and information about his life. Does anybody know a good book or site? In Russian or English?

    Кто-нибудь может порекомендовать хорошую книгу или сайт с биографией Льва Толстого? На русском или английском языке.

    Only English ones... hope that one these are of use to you:

    Bio Channel
    Leo Tolstoy Biography
    http://www.biography.com/articles/Count ... oy-9508518

    New World Encyclopedia
    http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Leo_Tolstoy

    As for bio books, my understanding is any of the books by Ernest J. Simmons are excellent. There are even reviews online from "Time" back to 1946 about his books being the best. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/artic ... -1,00.html
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.
